Imagine seeing a village, a town, a hamlet through the eyes of those who live there, while you wander the streets of off -the-main-road villages that are not on the top 10 sites that every tourist visits to take a selfie, but are real and thriving everyday life. Local markets, boutique shops and gourmet restaurants where the locals gather. Have you ever heard of a touring company giving the option to alter the itinerary to suit the needs of the small group? Probably not. But Artistic Gourmet Adventures can do just that because YOU are the most important part of the equation!
